LaTex -- Convert to XML

Anyone doing LaTex conversions? I need to get from LaTex to XML to InDesign.

The LaTex format is straight forward, and writing a parser for it can be 
done. The job we have in mind will not necessary include all the complex 
LaTex mark up for complex math. This is simple documentation.

But before I begin re-inventing the wheel I was wondering if anyone else 
has any LaTex parsing libs already built.  I could repurpose them. The 
existing tools produce XML that is too generic, or way over kill 
requiring "Super Nerd" skills to install complex unix low level bash 
scripts, as with most things, getting from A to G with Revolution, 
\begin{quip}{is that the name of our code now? :-) ?} will probably 
faster and simpler.
